I could easily drink the entire 6 pack. Some apple breaks through & slight peppery hops. Finishes crisp, bready, and maybe a hint of corn. A sweet taste to start, with not much hop at all.
Very drinkable. Milder German pils. Color is a very light yellow. This beer was better then I hat anticipated.

look: 3.25 | smell: 3.75 | taste: 4 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Pours a mostly clear straw color with a chill haze. Little head and no lace. Aroma of bready malt, herbal hop and a bit of citrus. In the taste, pilsner malt and smaller, slightly citrusy hop character with lemon notes. Medium bodied, well carbonated mouthfeel on a pils that is easy to drink. Overall, this was a decent pils with good flavor.

Privatebrauer Sudwerk Pilsner: Davis, CA

-ABV not on bottle (always bugs me), but it was a sample bottle, so you never know.

-Poured into a Sam Adams Beer glass

-Appearance: Fairly clear, wheat/straw colored, lots of carbonation visible. Thin head, expected more foam with the amount of carbonation seen.

-Smell: Doesn't smell as malty as I had expected. Actually, it smells more like a corn based beer product. Tried desperately to smell -anything- (and I have an excellent sense of smell, I taste for a living!) Just not much there.

-Taste: Light, crisp, hint of florality, which was sadly missing in the smell. Much better than the smell would have let on. Good carbonation, a little sweet on the finish. I actually very much enjoyed this beer, I just wish the smell had matched the body.

look: 3.5 | smell: 3 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

Enjoyed on tap at the brewery.

A: Pours a clear light golden yellow color. Small bubble streams rise to the top, giving it a lively appearance. A creamy, one finger, white head sticks around for quite some time.

S: The first scent that I pick up on is a corn and grainy aroma. Not very inviting. Luckily, some grassy, floral and barley aromas come through, but aren't enough to come through significantly against the overpowering corn smell.

T: Strong floral tastes come through initially. Grains and barley follow and it leaves a slight grassy aftertaste.

M: It has a medium body on the lighter side. A moderate amount of carbonation fits well. And it has a sort of oily feel.

O: Not a bad pilsener offering. The smell is a little off putting, but the other aspects are solid. An above average pilsener.

Serving type: on-tap
